I am pleased to announce the phased re-opening of our EMU at Lancaster site. Based on the trajectory of declining COVID-related metrics in our region, we plan to re-open our facility to staff on Tuesday, March 2 and in-person classes will resume beginning Tuesday, March 9. 

Our staff are very excited to be heading back to work in the building and look forward to welcoming you back in-person.  Based on our mitigation success last fall, we are hopeful that we can look forward to an uninterrupted return to onsite activity.  This hope rests on the assumption that transmission and hospitalization rates continue to decline in our region and that we continue to be diligent in our efforts to protect one another during this time.

WCSC will provide protocols and more information to students registered in their program this spring.
